Thoughts on color?

Thinking about dipping my hood roof and trunk, or maybe just the hood. Color is dark gray if its hard to tell. Sorry about my not-so-good photoshop skills.

don't do just the hood. then it will just look like you got a replacement and didn't paint it.

good color combo though between the gold and grey/black.

Before I tint the windows I need to get a doctors note... I've already got 3 warnings when they used to be tinted because tint is illegal in MN.
